Open Mic: What Would You Ask Giorgio Moroder?

What would you ask Giorgio Moroder, if you had the chance?

Synthtopia is working on some interviews, leading up to Moogfest, and we’d like to include some reader questions.

Giorgio Moroder pioneered electronic dance music in the 70’s, created classic synthesized film scores and has won a pile of Oscar and Grammy awards for his work. And Moroder has reinvigorated his career in the last few years, finding new fans with this DJ performances.

What question would you like to ask Giorgio Moroder? Leave a comment and let us know!

  1. I’d want to know more about the Midnight Express soundtrack. That totally blew my mind when it came out. It didn’t sound like anything else I’d ever heard, even though I already had listened to a lot of synth music by then.

  2. Please tell about your records from 70’s and 80’s which went unreleased and projects which even haven’t gotten to the stage of recording (there should be some!).

  3. Does he have anything to do with the facebook page that claims to be him.. ( i know the answer, but it would be good for others to realise )

    Actually my question would be more of a statement.. : Dude, u should go back to working with Harold Faltermeyer.. thats when the magic happens. 🙂

  4. Where he finds musical inspiration? How does he stay loyal to a genre, or a formula, and still keep his sound fresh? What is his recipe for good music, what ratio of acoustic and synthesized elements does he use? How does he stay focused and positive with so much going on in the world? What is his advice for a new musician starting out?

      1. Who were his musical influences when he was young? When did he become a musician, and what instruments did he play before getting into synthesis?

  5. You’ve composed for many of my favorite films like Midnight Express, Battlestar Galactica, American Gigolo, Cat People, Electric Dreams (in which you play a Record Producer!), Flashdance, Scarface, The Never Ending story I & II, and Metropolis. Which on was the most memorable and why?

  6. Hi Giorgio, I always liked how you combined Mick Khan’s R.I.P (Japan) fret-less bass style with analogue synth bass, any tips for getting that to work in the mix.. PS thanks for the stereo breakdowns you posted for a insight into how ‘I feel Love’ is so ultra stereo when heard sepereattly but works in the mix too. cheers b.
